I eat here probably 4 or 5 times a month; the buffet is large, always clean, and the food always stocked and fresh. It's a great value for the price and the staff work very hard to keep it clean and organized.

We decided to stop by on a Saturday night and got there exactly 1 hour before closing. Could not believe that there were so many empty trays of food. What was left was Luke warm and hard. We sat for awhile, thinking they would surely bring more food out. Meanwhile, 6 more customers came in and sat down. Not only... More

The service was terrible! I was barely greeted and I don't think anyone smiled at me once! I felt like I was an inconvenience. The food was terrible as well- very bland and seemed to be sitting out for far too long. Pickles in sushi!?! Yuck!

Great selection of food for a Buffett. Went for 3 plates and tried a variety of the different food items they had for selection. Fried rice was excellent. Was very busy during lunch rush. Was a clean and inviting. Quick and easy if your in a hurry for lunch.

Variety good. Some times entrees run low. Booths old and some could use new springs. Not a sophisticated ambiance but OK. Yogi Berra used to say ' Nobody Goes there any more. It's too crowded.' This place has been the opposite, it is never crowed. Good food,(not above par, but good). fast buffet service, good price for 'all you can... More

Never disappointed with their selection or quality. Best lunch when you're in a hurry and have a group to feed. Everyone finds something they like!

We have been to many buffets in our time. But the selection here was perfect. And I love the fact that when replenishing the items they brought them out in smaller quantities to ensure freshness. The sesame chicken was perfect and the spring rolls were amazing. I loved that they had the sauces all ready as not to have to... More

This was a nice buffet, good variety, clean and not over-priced, the first buffet I have been to that had Rice Noodles! I would go back if in the area again.

They have a decent selection of food, which includes a mix of standard dishes like General Tsos, Sweet & Sour, soups and IMO great noodles as well as a few types of rice. Customers are even treated to a deserts section. Reasonably priced to boot

By far the best Chinese buffet in the area. It is always clean and they keep the food fresh and nice looking so you never get a glop of food that's been sitting out for a while looking dead again. It's priced right and the staff work very hard.
